Garmin GLO Connectivity with Select iOS Devices


GLO1The latest iOS 8.3 update, which was just introduced a few weeks ago has been creating some issues with the way select iOS products communicate with external GPS devices such as the Garmin GLO. While this issue is not limited to Garmin GLO, the issue originates between the GPS receiver and the iOS location services, which ultimately means that this problem affects all applications equally as none of them are able to access GPS location information.

When running iOS 8.3, customers may not be able to receive GPS information from a Garmin GLO on the following devices:

  • iPhone 4s
  • iPad 2
  • iPad (3rd generation)

For customers who use the Garmin Pilot app along with Garmin GLO to receive GPS data, a firmware update is available for GLO, which resolves these connectivity issues. To download and install version 2.70 firmware for your Garmin GLO, download and run Garmin WebUpdater.

We’re thrilled to offer Garmin Pilot and Garmin GLO customers an update to quickly resolve connectivity issues brought on by the 8.3 iOS update. For additional information, do not hesitate to contact our award-winning pilot operations and aviation support team at
